Sounds of the States 04 Jul 2015

It's the fourth of July and the celebration of Independence Day over the pond seems as good an excuse as any to highlight some of the great acts from the States joining us this year!

We've put together a little playlist of just some of the great American talent at this year's Festival, including...

The amazing award-winning blues guitar of Lurrie Bell, who forms one half of our brilliant Blues from Chicago evening with Mud Morganfield, also featured here.

Then there's jazz trumpet man, Warren Vaché who plays three gigs this year, with Brian Kellock, Jacob Fischer and as a guest of the Batchelors of Jazz.

After Warren comes keyboard player extraordinaire, Cory Henry, who plays the Festival in a very promising gig with young Scottish band, Trio HSK.

And finally its back to the blues, with the guitar, harp, vocals duo of Moreland and Arbuckle, who are one of three acts (with Jenson Interceptors and Ben Rice) at our Sunday Blues Afternoon on Sunday 26 July.
